A new "Work Hours Calendar" in English and Spanish has been developed to help workers make sure they are properly paid at the end of the work week. The calendar helps workers track their rate of pay, when they start and stop working, and arrival and departure times. This information would prove invaluable during an investigation where an employer has failed to maintain accurate employment records. Designed for use by those who are the most vulnerable workers in the country, the calendar includes easy-to-understand information about worker rights and how to file a wage violation complaint. The calendar can be ordered by calling 1-866-4US-WAGE (866-487-9243).
